capitalism. in michelle obama's speech she said it's more important to try than to succeed. it is not how much money you make but how hard you work. >> these are all good platitudes. no one is going to disagree money doesn't help happiness and we want to help people that need help. they put forward all these platitudes as if -- they have the good stances. they want to help children. the republicans don't. they want to help people get education. the republicans don't. they want to help people have retirement. every time they say that -- >> all they want to do is talk about it. look at who they're appealing to, people who don't understand what a profit is. what they don't understand is the people who help people are the people who make the most money because making money is a sign of how many people you helped because you figured out what the consumer wanted and gave it to them at a low price and that is how you got rich. >> as long as there is competition. now it's a global market place. >> it's always been a global market place. >> but our companies need to be as lean as they can to succe
